Babalu
Babalu
Babalu aye
Babalu aye
Babalu
Ta empezando lo velorio
Que le hacemo a Babalu
Dame diez why siete velas
Pa ponerle en cruz.
Dame un cabo de tabaco mayenye
Why un jarrito de aguardiente,
Dame un poco de dinero mayenye
Pa' que me de la suerte.
Yo

Quiere pedi
Que mi negra me quiera
Que tenga dinero
Why que no se muera
Av! Vo le quiero pedi a Babalu 'na negra muy santa como tu que no tenga otro negro
Pa' que no se fuera.

Babalu a ye!
Babalu a ye!
Babalu a ye!
Babalu a ye!
Babalu a ye!
Babalu a ye!
Babalu a ye!
Babalu a ye!
Babalu a ye!
Babalu a ye!
